Pancake & Waffle Shack @ Barton Mills | Lifestyle

Yesterday, I had the day off & K finishes work at 12pm so we were looking for something to do. After googling 'things to do in Suffolk' and only castles, beaches or museums coming up, we were stuck. It needed to be cheap/free, so of course our first idea was head out for a meal! Do you hear my sarcasm? We decided to try out the Pancake & Waffle Shack, which I think I'm right in saying opened late last year. According to Google, it is 10 miles away from where I live so we made the short drive to see what all the fuss was about. 

I must be honest, I wasn't expecting much after hearing very mixed reviews about it. I've heard that there are always queues coming out the door, service is slow and not to bother going there. Then again, I have also heard very good things! So of course I had to check it out for myself.

Upon arriving, we couldn't see anybody inside so we thought we had come at the perfect time! Inside, it's much smaller than I thought but the decor is amazing. I'm not sure I'd say it's american diner themed, but I really enjoyed looking around at all the different posters and bits on the walls. The lights were amazing, and it's left me searching on Pinterest on how to do it myself!

As we went in, we were greeted and taken straight to a table. It was empty! There was only one other group in there, so our order was taken almost immediately. Other tables that came in after us seemed to be getting their food before us but I assumed this was because I ordered chips (yep, fussy eater over here!) and not pancakes/waffles.

K ordered a Milky Bar milkshake and I, of course ordered an Oreo milk shake. It was nice. Like, really nice. But it was just a simple milkshake which I could make with my blender in the kitchen. K also enjoyed his and I would say they were worth the money. I think we only paid about £3 for each of them.

I didn't bother photographing my boring chips, but for £2.50 you got tonnes and I only managed to eat about a quarter of them! If I'm honest, I wasn't very hungry but the fact K ordered 'Banella' (Banana & Nutella pancakes!) I felt like I should probably order something. K only managed to eat about a quarter of his pancakes too, he said they were 'lovely, but very very sickly'. 

So, would I return? I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back. This is purely because I only went for a milkshake, which as I said before I could make in my own kitchen. I imagine for pancake & waffle lovers this place is heaven on earth! I'd be interested to know what the waffles are like too.

Rating? 3/5.

Have you tried this restaurant? Do you have any places like this near you?

  3. Oreo milkshakes are the best! The pancakes look amazing, it seems like the perfect breakfast place I'd say. If I went there for lunch I would probably rather have chips too haha. We have a waffle place close to our town but I have never tried it, maybe I should. :)

  4. Those pancakes look amazing and I don't even overly like pancakes!
